Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 23, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, July 23, 1890 Another thoroughly lovely day of delightful temperature. Sara went to N.Y. by the 8.10 train. We had our breakfast at 6. Calvert and Marion were to sail today. I went down town and saw John about selling the concrete house to Tom. He advises selling but before I put a price on it I will see how large the lot is tomorrow when Van Eltan comes to make the survey. Have been busy most of the day over accounts and seeing to keeping matters straight. I wrote to Church and told him we could not come up now. We need rain very much as the ground is very dry.
